Mini Chocolate Bar Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Mini Chocolate Bar Box Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Mini Chocolate Bar Box Tutorial

On pinterest a few weeks ago, I came across a photo of a cute snackbox, but there was no link to it. I have no idea who the designer was or what the dimensions were, but it was enough to inspire me to make one of my own.

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Mini Chocolate Bar Box Tutorial Open

I like to gift mini chocolate treats to my boys every now and again, and with Tesco being our supermarket of choice, it’s their own brand choccies that get given out more than any other, so I used those as the basis size for my boxes. Which incidentally are 1 x 1.5 x 3″ (2.5 x 4.5 x 7.5cm) when finished.

I love how cute they are, and yes, they’re definitely girly, but the boys will get a more manly version of them…!
